Futurism reports that mystery continues to swirl around drama at OpenAI that saw CEO Sam Altman ousted and then reinstated less than a week later.

.

One of the theories behind the upheaval is that the company may have developed a highly advanced AI that threw the board into chaos.

.

Last week, Reuters was one of the outlets to report that OpenAI had been spooked by its Q* project, pronounced "Q star.".

The new Q* system has been touted as a significant step towards the company's goal of achieving an AGI, or artificial general intelligence.

Reuters reported that Mira Murati, a former OpenAI nonprofit board member, acknowledged the existence of this new Q* model in an internal staff message.

Sources claim that Q* was at the heart of the decision to fire Altman over a push for commercializing the product before it was fully understood.

Those sources claim the new AI system is capable of solving grade-school math equations, an achievement long considered a benchmark in developing an AGI.

In the case of math, we know existing AIs have been shown to be capable of undergraduate-level math but to struggle with anything more advanced, Andrew Rogoyski, Director at the Surrey Institute for People-Centered AI, via Futurism.

However, if an AI can solve new, unseen problems, not just regurgitate or reshape existing knowledge, then this would be a big deal, even if the math is relatively simple, Andrew Rogoyski, Director at the Surrey Institute for People-Centered AI, via Futurism.

Futurism reports that researchers remain optimistic that if Q* is capable of solving these simple math problems, it would represent a major step forward toward actual AGI.

Musk ultimately contributed $45 million to OpenAI's funding, and $90 million was raised through other donors, CNN reports. . He never fulfilled his promise to fund the rest, CNN reports. . We all understood we were going to need a lot more capital to succeed at our mission — billions of dollars per year, which was far more than any of us, especially Elon, thought we’d be able to raise as the non-profit, OpenAI, via blog post. In 2019, OpenAI became a for-profit entity and now has a $90 billion valuation. Microsoft has committed $13 billion to their cause. We’re sad that it’s come to this with someone whom we’ve deeply admired—someone who inspired us to aim higher, then told us we would fail, started a competitor, and then sued us when we started making meaningful progress towards OpenAI’s mission without him, OpenAI, via blog post
